Rambling in an overly broad sense, Tom tends to create three different versions of the bent Egg, and all vary to some degree from what I have come to think of as the strict Danish prototype. When I started to examine this impossibly sleek iteration, only my well-noted sloth prevented me from mentally creating a fourth subcategory. While exuding a palpable serpentine anima, an effect created by a subtly greater rounding of the rear of the bowl compared to the front (accompanied by a rise of the same that suggests a heightened sense of curiosity/alertness), the arc of the shank and stem is so muted that I almost want to remove 'bent' from the title.
To say that "Tom knows his way around a cross-grain" might be an understatement on par with "Cole Porter knew his way around a tune"; the surface of this near Streamline Moderne, eloquent Egg contains enough birdseye to send Tippi Hedren into a tailspin, and the thin bands of crosscut on the fore and aft of the bowl boast the tight regularity of harp strings.--R. 'Bear' Graves
